While it may look like Angelina Jolie is the only one spending time with her children, that’s not actually so, as it seems that Brad Pitt is seeing them just as often — he just isn’t as open about it.
According to In Touch, the actor, 55, has been doing his dad duty and hanging out with his six children as much as his ex-wife, 43. “Brad is spending plenty of time with his kids — at his home,” an insider told the outlet. “He just isn’t parading them around like Angelina has been doing.” The Maleficent star has been seen in public with her kids numerous times, most recently she was spotted taking her daughter Vivienne, 10, to karate class. Sometime before that, she made a local appearance at a park, selling organic dog tweets with Shiloh, 12, and Knox, also 10.
This past December, the pair finally reached a child custody agreement, so it makes sense that the World War Z star is spending more time with his sons and daughters. At the time, Angelina’s attorney, Samantha Bley DeJean, said this: “The agreement, which is based on the recommendations of the child custody evaluator, eliminates the need for a trial. The filing and details of the agreement are confidential to protect the best interests of the children.”
The duo had been at odds for almost two years over the custody of their six kid (they’re also parents to Maddox, 17, Pax, 15, and Zahara, 13). An insider once told Us Weekly that Brad understands how important it is to have his children back in his life. “The visits will continue to be monitored until the therapists agree that it’s no longer needed,” the source explained at the time. “This is a transition time for the entire family, and it’s being done with a lot of input.” They added that while the Oscar winner gets that “the custody issues will continue to linger,” he “knows he’s on the path to having the kids back in his life in a much more meaningful and significant way.”
We just hope that both Angelina and Brad can continue to successfully coparent, even if one prefers to do it in public.
